Piano is the place almost all musicians learn their theory and ear training. It has to do with how easy it is to play many notes at once. Other instruments do not allow this. They limit to sometimes one note at a time. That explains why every institution of higher learning (college) in the western world requires every student of music to learn piano along WITH their instrument. It's for education in harmony. Piano is a nice instrument musically by itself too though. It can be a complete music without having to sing or get a band together.

About Loren R.

Loren is a well-known music instructor and has been teaching private music lessons in the Elk Grove area since 2002. He has been teaching for years and years, has two music degrees and is an active performer in many styles, enjoying a steady gigging schedule in the Sacramento area. He's "the real deal."



*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons are of the highest quality available as the student learns to read music, is guided in music theory with ear training, technique, and performance, however performance remains optional. There are options.

We often begin with songs that the student already likes. Sometimes that's the ticket. From Bach to the Beatles, Taylor Swift to Bob Dylan, there are always great entrance points.

Theory, (chords, intervals, scales, cadences, etc.) Reading music, (tabs, traditional music notation, charts), Technique, (right and left hand patterns), it's all covered. It's fun and legitimate education.

*** Specialties ***
Lessons in piano or guitar cover all popular music styles including country, rock, and classical.

Loren is the best

My son is 5 he is really enjoying his time each week with Loren. Loren lets Brandon have fun but keeps him on line with what Loren would like to do that night. It has been ruff finding a consistent practice time but Loren arrives each week and keeps plugging along with Brandon. Brandon looks forward to the time with Loren and is also enjoying learning piano. my wife and I feel fortunate that Loren is part of our sons learning experience.
